Can you recommend me a good GPS mapping app for my Galaxy Note 2?

Ana Karina Hartvig-Nielsen December 29, 2012

I am looking for an app to install on my Samsung Galaxy Note 2 to so substitute the need to carry my Garmin GPS. I travel a lot and cannot always relay on data.

What would be the most reliable app you have come across as far as GPS goes? I live in Mission, BC, I am in Las Vegas and using the trial of Sygic. I would love to hear whether it works in my hometown or hear some alternatives that do!

    I don't have a suggestion for a live GPS app that does not require data, but those suggested works well. I like Waze, but would love to know a standalone app that does not require the use of data, also. Do realize that it may require 2+GB storage space to hold the maps, waypoints, and other info.

    You can try GPS Essentials :

    You can try SkyVi (like Siri) to find places and navigate you there using GPS :

    Also mentioning all the GPS based solution for Android from Google (i have presonally used them for direction and Navigation and they have been very accurate for me in India)

    Google Maps (GPS based direction and Navigation integrated, very accurate) :

    Street View on Google Maps :
